Not long ago the two were on tap to collaborate with prolific scribe Clive Barker on the Hellraiser remake. That was until the prospect of an updated Pinhead drifted back into the shadows after a chain of directors walked off the project. Creative differences was the often cited reason for the project's repeated stalling, but with this latest news from the Risky Biz Blog one can assume those differences never arose between Barker, Melton and Dunstan. Turns out the later two will be writing for Warner Brothers Television a series to be co-chaired by Barker and produced by McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision titled simply "Clive Barker's Hotel".
Now before you let the name McG scare you off, keep in mind that the Terminator Salvation director will be serving the same producer role he currently does on the CW's "Supernatural". And if you haven't seen that show, you'd be surprised how bold it is for network television. For exhibit A, check out the shape-shifting clip from Season 1 below.

There are no "Clive Barker's Hotel" plot details out yet, but it doesn't take a time-traveling cybernetic Sherlock Holmes to deduce it'll be about the eerie happenings inside a hotel. Think of it as "The Suite Life With Zack and Cody", only not as scary.
